The International Association for Urban Climate (IAUC) is an organization seeking membership from those with scientific, scholarly and technical interests and responsibilities in:

  • the climatology and meteorology of built-up areas, 
  • exchange processes between the urban "surface" and the overlying boundary layer, 
  • urban air quality, 
  • wind and turbulence in the city, 
  • measurement, modeling and remote sensing of urban atmospheric and surface characteristics at all scales, 
  • micro-scale processes and patterns associated with urban landscape elements (buildings, canyons, parks, roads etc), 
  • building climatology, 
  • biometeorology and bioclimatology within urban ecosystems, including human comfort and hazards, 
  • the inclusion of urban atmospheric processes into design and planning and the modelling of weather, and 
  • the representation of urban landscapes in models of climate at meso-scales.

The IAUC sponsors urbclim, an email distribution list devoted to the above topical areas and closely-related ones.  For more information on urbclim, click on the "Urbclim Email List" link on the footer at the bottom of this page.
